    withdrawal
    I have tapered down to 1 300mg cap a day of Neurontin. How can I safely and completely quit? What are withdrawal symptoms and how long will it take? I was prescribed the Neurontin for nerve damage after surgery. I've been on it for years.

    There is a generic for Neurontin - Gabapentin. It works just as well as the original - at least for me! It is much less expensive.
